Glamour Accessories, Patterns Book 176, Spool Cotton Co

This book reads just like is was intended ... a 1940s glamor magazine.    Truly, this is like watching an old black and white movie; one is slightly holding their breath waiting for Elizabeth Taylor to step forward and absolutely take our breath away.   And, appropriately so ... this pattern book, issued by Cotton Spool Company back in 1942.     There's 14 pictures here, so grab a cup of coffee (or whatever you like to drink) and enjoy the photo journal.
